Getting things done – Park Place #dundeewestend

Residents have drawn to my attention the mess recently of Park Place near the Old Hawkhill junction – see photo below :
 
 
The bins here are a mix of council and commercial bins and I have contacted environment management at the City Council’s Neighbourhood Services requesting action to have the area tidied and necessary steps taken to ensure the area is kept clean in future.

Temporary Traffic Order – Park Place

Dundee City Council proposes to make an Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 for the purpose of facilitating works for the construction of water storage vessels for Dundee University.  The Order is expected to be in force for twenty six weeks from 25 April 2011.  Its maximum duration in terms of the Act is eighteen months.

The effect of the Order is to prohibit temporarily all vehicular traffic in Park Place from its junction with Old Hawkhill for a distance of 75 metres or thereby in a southerly direction.

Pedestrian thoroughfare and vehicular access to premises will be maintained where possible.

As most of the roads immediately south of the junction of Old Hawkhill/Park Place are privately owned then no (local authority) authorised diversions are available.

Please forward any comments you may have regarding this proposal to the Network Management Team, City Development Department, Tayside House, Crichton Street, Dundee, no later than five working days prior to the commencement date.  If you have any queries please contact 01382 433168.

Road closures – update

I have received an update from the City Council regarding two current road closures :

“Thomson Street will run for a further six weeks from the original end date. This is due to a combination of weather conditions and unforseen operational difficulties.
Park Place will run for a further two weeks from the original end date. Again this is due to weather conditions and unforseen operational difficulties.”

Whilst all accept it is reasonable to expect some delay given the weather conditions, I am speaking with the City Council and Scotland Gas Network’s contractor regarding the lengthy delay at Thomson Street.
